Astrology as a subject of study in degree courses was introduce by University Grant Commission (UGC) in year 2000. Prior to this some Sanskrit collages and institutes use to have astrology in their curriculum of Acharya and Shastri degrees. However, there was no dedicated degree courses in astrology such as B.A. and/or M.A. in astrology. In year 2000 then HRD minister Shri Murli Manohar Joshi ordered UGC to introduce astrology as ‘ Jyotir Vigyan’ degree course in Universities. This decision of HRD ministry by then BJP government ignited many rationalist, scientist and communist politicians. Two cases were filed against this decision, one in Madras High Court and the other in Andhra Pradesh High Court, both of which were dismissed. The petitioners from Andhra Pradesh filed an appeal in the Supreme Court and they subsequently lost the case there also. Shri K.N. Rao appeared as a private petitioner in this case in the Supreme Court to defend the cause of astrology which he did successfully. He has mentioned the details of this matter in his book “Jyotisha the super-science”.

However, things are still very miserable as far as teaching astrology is concern in India is concern as non of the top ranked Universities are offering any courses in this ancient subject. Delhi University , Calcutta University , Jawhar Lal Nehru University (JNU) are among the top ranked Indian Universities and none of these have have any astrology courses to offer. Only the Banaras Hindu University is among the premier Indian Universities which is teaching astrology as a degree subject in their affiliated collages.

Learn Vedic Astrology in Himalayas
Fellowship of Institute of Vedic Astrology
August 23 - August 31, 2008 at Binsar, Uttarakhand, India
The bewitching ambience of the magnificent Himalaya has provided rich nourishment to the seeker of wisdom over thousands of years. The ancient sages of India, those matchless spiritual scientists, developed a formidable body of knowledge which became the backbone of the ancient Indian culture. It is no mean tribute to those spiritual giants that the modern world too recognises the Indian culture as the offshoot of the one that was developed several millennia ago in the lap of the Himalaya. One such body of knowledge is the subject of Vedic astrology that has continued to fascinate humankind to this day. This exalted science, which remained confined to India for a long time, has lately attracted the attention of the analytical west. The Institute of Vedic Astrology, the publishers of the 'Vedic Astrology' magazine, has been playing a significant role in disseminating this knowledge across the globe.

Practical Application of Principles
Ulcerative colitis appears to manifest in most cases during the dasha of an afflicted natural benefic. Each house of the horoscope appears to be related to health, disease and longevity in some way or the other. Some houses appear to be more relevant to these aspects than the others, but they all have something or the other to do with issues related to health. This of course is in addition to the different body parts which they various houses represent in the natal chart, in the Drekkana, and possibly in other divisional charts as well.
Dr. Suresh Chandra Mishra
Sage Vyasa states that a duly married couple properly observing all socio-religious obligations with a plenty of patience, appropriate modesty and full honesty enjoys all worldly bliss. And after death, both sojourn to heavens. Such people through their noble progeny channel prosperity and peace not only to their family but also to the society.
Marriage, a multi-dimensional union, finally concludes in mental, physical and spiritual wedlock where the mental compatibility is of utmost significance. Hence, the natal Moon, being the sole representative of one's mind, by far assumes greater importance. The lagna at birth denotes body while the Moon represents mind of a native. Since marriage is primarily a union of two minds, and not only of two bodies, hence the marriage compatibility primarily emerges through the Moon signs of the bride and the groom. Rashis of the couple should not mutually happen to be 2-12 from each other, as such companions would be demanding more and more. Your savings then would not remain intact and regular which eventually may lead you to a financial crunch. In fact, this effect is not confined to money only. Demand for excessive care and attention, fondness for luxuries, cravings for all pomp and show, a split in the family or of the companions, etc., may be some other ways reflecting the above effect.
Dr. Mishra gives the effect of other mutual rashi placements of the Moons of the two partners. Then he explains the Nadi dosha and elaborates the astrological method to ascertain how will your companion be? The author also give astrological rules for timing the marriage, delay or denial of marriage. The article is illustrated with many example horoscopes.
The Enigma of Rahu-Ketu and their Dispositors
Vedic astrology is enormous and at times seems containing contradictory ideas, but it can be understood little by little if we find some appropriate keys for seeing the horoscopes. We think Rahu and Ketu and their dispositors are those valuable keys.
Karmic astrology unveils the mysteries of human life. Karmic astrology is the art and science of realizing that it is the karmas, from past lives or this one, that make our lives. Paramhansa Yogananda in his great work, Autobiography of a Yogi, has mentioned: 'A child is born on that day and at that hour when the celestial rays are in mathematical harmony with his individual karma. His horoscope is a challenging portrait, revealing his unalterable past and its probably future results. But the natal chart can be rightly interpreted only by men of intuitive wisdom; these are few.'
There are three classifications of karma based on Vedic wisdom: (a) Sanchit Karma is a warehouse of karmas which has been accumulated over many lifetimes. This can be taken stock of by the yogas present in the horoscope. (b) Prarabdha Karma means that karma which is ripe for bearing fruit in the present lifetime. This is represented by the dasha scheme present in the chart. (c) Kriyamaan Karma means the karmas that we create in this very lifetime. Jyotisha can unveil the secrets of this type of karmas according to the transits of planets relative to the natal planetary positions.
We may consider these three types of karmas as representative of unconscious, subconscious and conscious levels of mind respectively. So, the Sanchit is the source of karmic waves in our lives. In the chart there are some points that direct us to understand the secrets of Sanchit, such as the 5th and 9th houses including the Yogas; but the role of Rahu and Ketu is exceptional. Rahu and Ketu and their dispositors may guide us to realize the reasons of manifestation on Sanchit as this or that Prarabdha.
Vaastu: A Science of Harmonious Structures
Origin of Vaastu: To attain the perfect harmony between man and nature, the ancient Indian sages evolved a positive and healthy attitude towards its animate and inanimate surroundings. In pursuit of harmony, they attained excellence in various branches of Science, Art and Philosophy. One such branch of knowledge was called Vaastu Shastra. Vaastu is derived from the word Vasti or Vasa - a habitat, a place of dwelling or working. Literally, it is the divine science of harmonious structures. Structures of all types including houses, shops, business establishments, factories, office complexes, hospitals, educational institutions and even temples (places of worship) and towns too come under its preview.
English Translation and Commentary by Dr. K S Charak
Varahamihira is considered the greatest authority on Vedic astrology after the era of the sages like Parashara. He was born near Ujjain during the sixth century AD. His most popular works are the Brihat Jataka and the Brihat Samhita. The Laghu Jatakam is a rather abridged version of the Jataka text. Easy to comprehend and rich in substance, it is a classic that must be studied alike by the novice and the master.
